Outdoor spaces add an extra flair to your home and provide you additional recreational space. However, people often don’t know about the differences between outdoor spaces. In this article, we will be discussing each one so you have a better understanding of each one.
Porches are the most common outdoor extensions. They are covered spaces in front of a house or building and traditionally having access to the main door. This type of space is perfect for receiving guests or as an extension of your living area.
For structures with more than one level, balconies are sometimes present. It is an extension of a building’s upper floor, projecting from the wall of a structure. It is a platform enclosed by walls or balustrades usually made of steel. Balconies are usually small and are not used for recreational purposes.
Another outdoor space is a veranda. A veranda is a roofed platform extending across both front and sides of a structure. An integral part of this space is the roof. Make sure to consult a roofing company to ensure your roofing is fail-proof. The veranda may also be partly enclosed by railings.
Patios are also beautiful additions to a space. They are open spaces adjoined to a house and are commonly used for dining and recreation. They are often decorated with plants and rustic furniture.
A deck is like a veranda, minus the roof. The floors are usually made of wood and used for barbeque parties and as a dining area.
